READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null
I went to a Bare Minerals store on a whim, and was color matched for the Ready Foundation in Medium Tan, I'm between fair and medium and thought this would be too dark, it wasn't really...it is amazing how much lighter is goes on. I have some rosacea , and after seeing the video with Shelby, and with going to Ulta and buying some Original Bare Minerals powder I learned to go with the neutral for covering rosacea. I now use the Medium Beige in Ready. I love it, I learned to REALLY, REALLY go easy. I was getting it in my lines a little at first too ( like I've seen some comments) I decided one day to just tap ,and brush it on one whole side of my face, and another tap for the other side, It really is enough, and no bisque concealer is needed on my cheeks anymore!!
So in love!!!
I'm a little late to the game but I finally tried the ready foundation after being a fan of the loose powder foundation for years. I got the precision face brush to use with it and couldn't be happier. I was always disappointed after a twelve hour work day with how my powder foundation looked. Apparently I have more combination skin than I thought. So, I got the oil control foundation primer and the ready foundation and tried them together. I couldn't be happier!!!! I noticed about half way though the day my skin felt a little cakey (don't think that's really a word) but my complexion still looked flawless and not oily at all. I actually worked about sixteen hours that day and my makeup stayed strong the whole time. So now I'll be using both depending on how long I plan to be wearing my makeup. I can't wait to be able to try the new bareskin foundation as well!
P.S. I was a shade darker than in the loose powder. Keep that in mind if you can only order off the internet. I would definitely recommend going into the store to try and/or see the product before buying.
This Foundation is amazing!
I bought this foundation a few days ago and ever since I have been using it, it has brought nothing but good coverage to my acne scars and my acne.
You would think just because it is a powder it wouldn't be as much coverage as it brought but it really is an amazing product.
Not as good at the Matte Foundation
I tried this out because I love the Bare Minerals Foundation. I did not like this as well as the Bare Minerals Matte Foundation. The Bare Minerals Matte Foundation looks much better on my skin. I did use some of the foundation but, I went back to the Matte Foundation.
Worst Foundation I've ever tried.
I'm a woman of color, (NW45 in mac) and Warm dark in the original formula, and this is by far the worst foundation I've ever tried. Extremely cakey and dry looking. I tried 3 different shades, and could not find a color to match me, meanwhile I match several shades in the loose powder formula. Huge disappointment.
I really wanted to like this foundation. I got a perfect color match using fairy light, and it looked amazing when I first applied it. You have to be very careful with this foundation to not over apply, or it will look really cakey as the day goes on. Even with applying a light layer using the flawless application brush, by the end of the day the texture didn't look as good in a few places on my face. The main reason for the rating I gave is that shortly after putting it on my face is so itchy. I have never had that problem with foundations before.
Love this product...but BM...needs to add more shades for people of color...I think BM should copy every shade for people of color from the MAC make up line
I think I found my foundation soul mate....
I am a long time bareMinerals user and although I love the product, I was never able to get an exact skin tone match (I was always between Light and Fairly Light) but I love the product so much I would opt for "ghost face" and add warmth. With this foundation, I am not sure if the shades are slightly different, but I have finally found my color match. On top of that, the foundation feels so soft and smooth on my skin, more so than the powder foundations. Also-unlike the powder foundations-I've made virtually no mess during my morning routine and I feel like a very tiny amount goes a very long way. This READY foundation has completely transformed my morning routine and it looks so RADIANT on my skin.
Another one hit out of the park, bareMinerals! Thank you!
I was using Mary Kay "mineral foundation" and the first ingredient is Talc-something they say if really not good for you skin. Over time i developed mild acne on my cheeks. After sleeping in Bare Escentuals foundation for 1 night I could already tell a difference in my cheeks. The following night I used the night serum sample I was sent and the next morning even better results. My mary kay went into the trash and I will forever be greatful for bare escentuals! The minerals in the foundation did the trick for me.
The BEST foundation ever!
This is truly the most amazing foundation I have ever found! I cannot believe how very well it covers my redness and with so small amount. I don't even have to use a cover stick anymore, just use a smaller brush to touch up areas that need more coverage. It feels light and it does NOT come off! This really stays on longer even than 12 hours and no matter how much I touch my face, brush up against things, etc. it stays on my face! I will use this forever. Thank you Leslie and Bare Escentuals.
